Social Performance & Impact Management Module

Monitor the achievements of your social mission

General Description

The Module for Social Performance & Impact Management deals with one of the main challenges of microfinance industry, which is the measuring of social performance and impact on clients’ lives and businesses through the financial services provided. The module is created based on industry standards developed by the leading SPM promoters, such as: SPTF – Social Performance Task Force, the Mix Market, MFC (Microfinance Center) and CGAP (the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor).

The SPM Module supports definition of diverse types of Poverty Score Cards for measuring poverty level of borrowers and created impact from the lending process. The parameters that are used to measure social poverty outreach and monitoring social responsibility are dynamically defined and manageable from user side, in order to be aligned with the social mission of the organization.

The processing of Poverty Score Cards is performed automatically and can be integrated in any part of the process flow depending on client business needs.

Integrated DDC object on loan application level provides automatic calculation of the cards for social performance, based on predefined parameters which results are then used in statistical report analyses for measuring borrower’s rates as retention and impact rates, types of borrowers outreached, and further report analyses based on client needs.

The system supports measuring poverty and social outreach with sampling methods, by choosing group of clients either per branch, regions or random grouping, and then measuring their poverty levels. The results combined with statistical elements can give an insight if the social outreach of the organization is aligned with the social mission.
